Saddened by the developments leading to the resignation of the Nepali Prime Minister Prachanda the Secretary General said he is encouraged by the Maoist party's assurances of its commitment to peace process, including continued participation in the drafting of the constitution.

"The Secretary-General reiterates his call for restraint and political consensus," said a statement issue by the office of his spokesperson.

"He appeals to all concerned to strictly adhere to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and related accords, especially the Agreement on Monitoring of the Management of Arms and Armies (AMMAA), which stipulates clear and specific restrictions on the Nepal Army and the Maoist army," the statement said.
